I have many many trades. Do i have to include the the worksheet 8949 from the brokerage for all trades with my income tax form?

You will need to include a separate Form 8949 - not the worksheet from your brokerage - for each different type of trade that you have:
(A) Short-term transactions reported on Form(s) 1099-B showing basis was reported to the IRS
(B) Short-term transactions reported on Form(s) 1099-B showing basis wasn’t reported to the IRS
(C) Short-term transactions not reported to you on Form 1099-B
(D) Long-term transactions reported on Form(s) 1099-B showing basis was reported to the IRS
(E) Long-term transactions reported on Form(s) 1099-B showing basis wasn’t reported to the IRS
(F) Long-term transactions not reported to you on Form 1099-B

These Form 8949s must document all of your trades.
